The RF‑GLASS add‑on module allows you to include such climatic loads. For this, it is necessary to create a separate load case for each climatic load. Climate loads are comprised of temperature differences, pressure differences and altitude differences.
- Normal stresses σx from axial force and bending
- Shear stresses τ from shear force and torsion
- Equivalent stresses σv with comparison to limit stress
- Stress ratios related to equivalent stresses
- Normal stress σx from unit normal force N
- Shear stress τ from unit shear forces Vy , Vz , Vu , Vv
- Normal stress σx from unit moments My , Mz Mu , Mv
- Which stresses are most important for glass design consideration when using RF-GLASS?
- Where can I find the details of a layer composition in the RF‑GLASS add-on module?
- I would like to design a glass pane with temperature loads. In this case, a message appears saying that the load case includes the "temperature" surface loads types that are not transferred to the created temporary model. How can I consider the temperature loads?
- Is it possible to design a spherically curved glass pane in RF‑GLASS?
- In the calculation parameters of a load case or load combination, it is possible to activate various stiffness factors. What exactly is behind this?
- Are there any programs or add-on modules specially developed for glass structures?
- When calculating a curved surface in RF‑GLASS, I get a message saying that the surface has more than 4 boundary lines and thus no layered FE mesh can be used. How can I avoid this message?
- My aim is to mesh a circular hole plate in a mapped way. Is such a meshing possible in RFEM?
- Which method of analysis is used for insulating glass?
- Why is not there one load for each country in the online service "Geo-Zone Tool: Snow, Wind, and Seismic Zone Maps"?
